'Planting information anyone?': Trump flips out over nuclear weapons report at Mar-a-Lagohttps://t.co/7SQOcumzjt— Raw Story (@RawStory) August 12, 2022
And sure enough, it gets worse:
"Classified documents related to nuclear weapons were among items sought in Mar-A-Lago search warrant" - Report - Washington Post August, 2022 https://t.co/AdDUmT13nv— Joe Trippi (@JoeTrippi) August 12, 2022
"Investigators had been concerned about material from ... 'special access programs,' a designation even more classified than 'top secret' ... reserved for extremely sensitive operations carried out by the United States abroad or for closely held technologies and capabilities." https://t.co/QlA4gdQeWd— George Conway🌻 (@gtconway3d) August 12, 2022
I think we’ve found the reason Trump took these records, and it’s not just because he’s a narcissistic child.
"While the inventory provided to Mr. Trump’s team after the search is unlikely to reveal details about the specific documents he kept, it refers to an array of sensitive material, according to a person with knowledge of the matter." https://t.co/ZkcV12jOFP— George Conway🌻 (@gtconway3d) August 12, 2022

Kinda what I’m thinking.
